It's hard to find anyone who has never seen Pretty Woman, the movie that made Julia Roberts and Richard Gere one of the most romantic couples in movie history. In this thunderous 1990 hit, one of the film's most iconic scenes unrolls on the porch of a luxury penthouse. Edward Lewis, in the role of a multimillionaire entrepreneur, confesses to Vivian Ward being afraid of heights. Shocked, casting her wide-eyed over the entire city, the girl asks, "Really? So why did you choose a room in the penthouse?" With a lapalissian tone, he gives the answer that, from that moment on, becomes obvious to the world: "Because it is the best. The top floor is always the best."
Pretty Woman is a fairy tale so inspiring that thirty years later there is still talk of it. Being a fiction, it contains at least two true premises: dreams even exist to be realized and the rooftop of a property are effectively the best place where one can aspire to live. If to the dream and penthouse cocktail you add a city like Porto - one of the rare cities in the world where the proximity of the river allows you to touch it; and one of the few cities with a succession of blue flag beaches in the heart of the city center - then it is quite possible that Portugal is also one of those territories where the most demanding dreams can be fulfilled.
You may ask, what other advantages do you have acquired a penthouse in Porto, besides the luxurious views of the Douro River, the sea and the Foz? At LUXIMOS Christie's International Real Estate, a real estate company dedicated to unique properties, all the roofs are synonymous with luxury, good location, large areas, enormous comfort, unassailable interior design, contemporary style, maximum elegance, sophisticated accessories, and exclusive real estate details. Entire residences built on the top floor of luxurious buildings reserved for people for whom the sky is literally the only limit.
In the list of unparalleled virtues of penthouses is also the privacy, security, absence of noise and the unique light that characterizes the interior of the house. And as there is no penthouse without much space available, this means that in addition to being able to multiply the rooms and the living rooms, you can even create your own gym or private pool on the terrace.
Living in a rooftop is the best solution to combine a modern day life with quality of life.
